Now that's amazing!

The regular canons of Paterno in Sicily did not only have the privilege to wear the Cappa Magna. Once a year, on Holy Friday, they also made a procession through the city with the trains of the cappae trailing behind them. Now that must have been a sight! Needless to say that this custom was quickly abandoned in the 60ies.

Here are some photos (of minor quality, sorry). The first one is a shot of the actul event, the others show the cappae as they are exhibited today in the citie's Church and Castle:
